On Synology Serviio (tried with version 2.0 and 2.1) keeps updating his internal records on new video files. This is show in the log file and causes 80-100% CPU load.

Example log file:
2020-05-31 22:54:55,173 INFO [MediaFileIndexer] Added file '/volume1/video/Series/Space Force/Space.Force.S01E04.720p.WEB.H264-METCON[eztv.io].mkv' (title: Space.Force.S01E04.720p.WEB.H264-METCON[eztv.io]) to Library

The file is not changed, create time on file is 22:54, modify time is 22:54 and last access time show also 22:54.

The issue stops if i restart the Serviio process, but starts again after the next new file.

I have a slight suspicion that this behavior started after the last update from 6.2.2 to 6.2.3 of DSM on Synology.

    Isn’t there a (hidden) file in the same directory, that Serviio might be tracking? (like local cover image)

    Not that i can see, even from the command prompt i do not see extra files.

    I’ve now turned off “Generate thumbnails for local videos” and “Look for a local DVD cover image or poste” under metadata and no more 100% CPU usage for longer time.

    Maybe the thumbnail generator//ffmpeg does something with the file. Is it opened for read/write maybe?
